This is POR (Personal Objects Recognizer).

Personal Objects

We are surrounded by objects with personal memories.
However, it is hard for the blind to keep remembering and recognize such connections without vision.

POR aims to help them regain those connections between objects and memories.


1. Train

Users themselves train the POR by collecting data and register their personal objects with their comments. It is based on deep learning technology.

2. Audio Feedback for Photo-taking

POR guides blind users to take good photos of a targeted object by utilizing AR toolkit of iOS to create 3D point cloud around the targeted object.
